I feel like I landed on the right page here today! My doctor is sending me to see a gyno because I am 14 months pp and no period. I work all day and only nurse 3 times a day. I am overweight. I didn't have a period between my 2 kids which puts my last period in May 2008. I would love to chart but the last thing I want is to be pregnant right now. I am waiting on my cheap tests in the mail.
It is nice to read some other people are like me.
I don't really think this is all that abnormal. There are some women who don't get AF back until a few weeks after they have completely weaned, and if there is any nipple stimulation AT ALL it will continue to delay the return. I am also 14mo pp w/no AF so far and w/no AF in between! I haven't had one since Feb. 2008, b/c I have PCOS and had a long cycle when I conceived my first. Unfortunately, many doctors, even OBGYNs and specialists, are really ignorant when it comes to breastfeeding and women's cycles. When I was trying to figure out what was going on with me when I started experiencing the symptoms of PCOS, they all just wanted to give me hormones to induce a period or put me on BC instead of trying to actually figure out what was wrong and treat that. Soooo many gynos these days just hand out the Pill for every issue, thus covering up the symptoms instead of treating the cause.
And that is my rant for the day! Good luck!
